Victorian Gardener

The Historic Gardener offers talks and displays on gardening from the Roman period to the 1940’s ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign. I have one of the largest privately owned collections of authentic and replica gardening tools and equipment in the U
With a Garden History MA and as an ex-Head Gardener with masses of practical experience of gardening, education and the heritage sector, I can offer an accurate and fun display, suitable for everybody, even those who start off by not being the slightest bit interested in gardening.
I will be in period costume at all times. The display can be based around a large tent with tools, plants and lots of other items to give an attractive and fun event for visitors.
I could represent a specific person associated with your garden, Such as ‘Capability’ Brown.
The Historic Gardener will provide a fascinating insight into the gardens, plants and tools of bygone times. Whether you wanted to eat, appear more beautiful, relieve pain, improve a meal or kill a few rats, there were plants for every need.

The displays are designed to be fun and educational for people of all ages.

Suitable for Heritage Gardens, Museums, Schools, Garden Socieies and Country Fairs.
